Congrats to the Gibson Brothers!

The Gibson Brothers

This morning when the International Bluegrass Music Association announced the nominees for its annual awards show, there were plenty of familiar names on the list – including Nippertown’s own premier band of bluegrass boys – the Gibson Brothers.

Brothers Leigh and Eric Gibson and the rest of the band were honored with a nomination for Vocal Group of the Year, but that’s not all.

Their latest album, “Ring the Bell” on Compass Records, earned a spot on the list for Album of the Year, and the title track earned nods in two more prestigious categories – Gospel Performance of the Year and Song of the Year.

Here’s a live version of the song from last year’s Wind Gap Bluegrass Festival:

Congrats, guys, and good luck.

Meanwhile, it came as no surprise that Dailey & Vincent – the reigning two-time IBMA Entertainers of the Years – led the pack with 10 nominations. You can hear what that’s all about when Dailey & Vincent step into the spotlight at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall on Friday, November 19.

You’ll find a complete list of the nominees here.

Winners will be announced at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s awards show on Thursday, September 30 at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium.
